Waging Justice

A Doctor’s Journey To Speak Truth and Be Bold

Waging Justice is a deeply personal story of courage and compassion with global implications. Dr. Zeitz is a man of conscience who shares my commitment to bringing hope to the world’s poor. Please read Waging Justice. You won’t regret it! —Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu

In unflinching prose, Dr. Paul Zeitz shares a lifetime of struggles and hard-won lessons as a doctor, activist, father and son. His complex dance between healing others and healing himself ultimately transforms his inexplicable anger into a full-throttled, open-hearted, soul-satisfying action. “Waging Justice” is his personal story and yet also a universal one: a story of action, of courage and also of forgiveness. It is also a rallying cry to wage justice in our own lives, speak the truth, be bold and serve justice for all by taking action in our world today.

“I’ve known Paul since 2001 when we first teamed up in the global fight against HIV/AIDS, and we’ve worked together ever since. I’m moved by the backstory in Waging Justice, as Paul inspires me with his courage and tenacity. Put the biggest boulder in the path of the ambitious, stubborn, and hardworking Dr. Paul Zeitz and you can be sure he’ll find a way around it. If not over it, under it, or around it, he’ll grab a jackhammer and pound right through it. Paul is a driving force in ending the epidemics of AIDS, poverty, and sexual abuse that are raging through the world. Paul brings his can-do spirit to everything he does, including fighting for justice. This is a book you want to, no, you have to read. Dr. Zeitz’s voice should be heard by everyone.”

“In a world of searing injustice and glaring inequality, Dr. Paul Zeitz is a reminder that love, truth, and compassion remain the strongest forces on earth. His story is inspiring, challenging, and hope-restoring. I hope Waging Justice is read widely and his example is emulated more widely still. With people like Dr. Zeitz on our side, achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is not just possible, it’s distinctly probable.”

— Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General, World Health Organization

“Dr. Paul Zeitz is a passionate, articulate and visionary change-maker—but above all he is courageous, showing us how healing oneself and healing the world are intricately connected. Waging Justice is truly trailblazing, standing up to centuries of taboo and secrecy, and opening the door for ALL of us who have experienced sexual violence to come forward. Waging Justice invites us to let go of the shame we often carry, and to be part of a global and inclusive healing movement.”
